this but nonetheless, the meter is running. >> certainly is. as the day ticks down. good morning, steve, gretchen and peter. it appears president obama should get out his bill signing pen. he may need it sometime after around noon today to sign new legislation raising the nation's debt ceiling. the house voted 259-161 to pass, to raise america's borrowing limit. immediately $400 billion and then by another $1.5 to $2 trillion over time. while the top senate democrat wasn't making any promises, he suggests that the bill should pass the senate. >> i'm a long time member of congress. and i never count my votes until they're cast. so i'm hopeful but know that the republicans are going to have to produce some votes and we're going to have to produce some votes and i'm not here to declare victory. we have to get this thing passed. >> while it does appear that there is enough bipartisan support in the senate to get it to the president to sign, one of the top tea party republicans in the senate intends to vote against it. and suggests that the $2 trillion in spending cuts and spending caps don't go far
a minimum, steve. >> absolutely. nikkei index finished down something like 2%. right now, i was looking at the european stock market and, you know, it's pretty much down one, two, almost 3%. and the dow right now is down, what, 238 points right now as we speak. so it's really moving lower. >> that's not good for us. for more reaction, let's go to fox news reporter jennifer davis joining us live from our d.c. bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. all eyes on the global markets today to see how they react to news of this s&p downgrade. u.s. stock futures have tumbled. asian markets down. what's going to happen on wall street? that's the million dollar question today. the news from s&p came after those markets had closed on friday. downgrade going from triple a status down one notch to double a plus. s&p says this is a reflection not only of the political gridlock in washington and fact that the ratings agency doubts whether or not lawmakers can come together to work this problem out but also about the fact that they say that debt ceiling deal last week didn't cut enough. s&p
: barak, california. gaithersburg, maryland. republican, steve. caller: looking forward to reading the book. i have to tell you as a moderate republican, i thought cheney was a good congressman. i thought he was a fantastic secretary of defense and the gulf war and i would argue one of the worst vice-president we have ever had. very disappointed. i voted first term for him, and the second, unfortunately because of him. i will be interested to read his book to see what his take is. so far from what you have been reading from the reviews, this seems like a guy who was always good and blaming everybody else for failures of the bush administration. host: go ahead. finish up, steve. caller: when of the previous callers -- we are entitled to our own opinions and not entitled to our own facts. the iraq war when it comes to the facts, i have yet to see facts about weapons of mass destructions. i still think we should have gone in regardless. but a previous caller, a fellow republican, the valerie plame story, that there was no connection between him. you can stretch and say there was no di
. >> our friend steve has stopped by. >> hello. i was in the neighborhood and said let's talk about fog and wind and really cool temperatures. we had a big fog bank. had some thunderstorm activity up in northern california, extreme northen california. that didn't show up but the temperatures dropped. these are the current temperatures, livermore 74, san jose 71, only 59 in the city and the low is 55. the temperatures haven't moved much. 79 concord and fairfield. i draw your attention the fog pulled off for some. sonoma coast and half the marin coast. santa cruz but look at wind. west of 18, 22 at travis. west at stockton. if vacaville and -- that tells you that's a rip roaring sea breeze. we have the fog. it's not going away. can we warm it up? we will talk about that later. >> thank you. san francisco police are set to hand out tickets tomorrow to pedestrians, drivers and bic sifts who break photograph of laws in the south market. yesterday they passed out flyers encouraging people to be safe. they say accidents last year injured more than 200 people near 5th and market. the highest r
going to talk about his caddie. his former caddie steve williams, who was fired not that long ago. rather unceremoniously, one might argue, after being with tiger woods for about 11 years. this weekend the bridgestone invitational took place where tiger has had a lot of success. he was not with his caddie, steve williams. in fact, steve williams was with adam scott who you see on the right. guess who won. yeah, not tiger woods. adam scott won. >> there's some justice in there. >> poetic justice here. there are those saying steve williams is a bit of a sore winner. he's sort of bragging a little bit about all of this, gloloing that fortunes have turned in his favor. >> hard not to do if you are fired. >> tiger woods finished 37th in this tournament. so his fortunes not doing so well. >> maybe the caddie brings the luck. >> some advice, you never know, caddies can make a difference. >> as we know, charlie sheen's character is no o ng over "two and a half men." ashton kutchch all set to take over. now we have the details how they got rid of charlie's character. apparently he will hav
buchanan in washington. joining the table right now, though, finacier, steve. >> we've been hearing a lot over the past couple of days, a lot of democratic senators, commentators, some op-ed people telling us so much in slashing spending children will be kicked out of schools, parents will have to be feeding their children pine cones and wild berries. you got a chart. this is serious. it's unbelievable. they cut so much. i guess all of our long term debt problems are taken care of. let's take a look at what actually happened. so they did cut or were going to cut $2.1 trillion often years, back loaded and so on. this is a chart we looked at a couple of weeks ago. if you remember back in 2000 we had a surplus because tax revenues were 20.5% roughly. spending took off. you can see in the middle of that chart. spending at 28.1%. if we had done nothing -- >> for people at home the red line is the spending. the blue line is the revenues and they are going in the wrong direction. >> they are going in the wrong direction. let's look at the two top red lines. two top red lines would be what would
is causing fear in the markets. for more, we're joined by steve moore of the "wall street journal," joining us by phone. steve, there's been a lot said about the health of banks, particularly in europe, -- in europe, and that is involved with what's happening in the markets now. what can you tell us about that? >> i'm getting motion sickness with this stock market over the last week! i was one of those people that has talked about last week that bought on a dip so i'm not feeling so good about things today, but you know, i think one of the major triggers for the selloff today was the european banks, this crisis of debt in europe is not subsiding, there's a real concern now that germany may have to come in and essentially bail out the european central bank. so there is real panic with respect to the banks in europe, and what's happening, jenna, if you look at the market today, what's really getting creamed is american banks, as this kind of contagion and virus seems to be spreading to these shores. jenna: and so what is the takeaway for us, steve? because you look back in 2008, i mean, we we

me now, washington editor at large for the atlantic steve clemons, steve, thanks for joining me tonight. >> great to be with you, chris. >> so you look at where the u.s. has engaged and intervened and where they haven't, we are definitely not going to get into a shooting war with north korea no matter what kim jong-il does, he has a bomb. we did intervene in iraq and support nato intervention in libya. is the sort of perverse lesson not to give up your nuclear weapons? >> of course, it is. moammar gadhafi gave up his nuclear weapons as part of his own strategy to create a different kind of security for himself, which would embed himself and his family and his future with the west and try to behave a bit more, but now with the invasion, it sent a signal. in fact, on the day that president obama authorized intervention and we had our first nato strike there, north korea came out and basically told him he was a sucker, essentially, for having given up his nuclear weapons. and now the other problem, chris, is the bar for nations getting in the nuclear weapons track, technology has b
